Electricity supply includes various energy resources. However, not all resources have the same costs and environmental benefits.
Green power represents a renewable energy source that promises maximum environmental benefits. Green power is resourced from solar, wind, geothermal, biogas, suitable biomass, and Eco-friendly small hydroelectric sources.
Green power is voluntary or regulated. Customers often purchase green power for its benefits, zero-emission profile, and carbon footprint reduction.
Renewable energy includes self-renewing resources and relies on fuel sources that do not deplete quickly. These fuel sources include the sun, wind, running water, organic plants and waste (biomass), and heat from the earth (geothermal).
The benefits of renewable energy are significant, but some renewable energy technologies can have environmental impacts.
For example, large hydropower resources may have ecological trade-offs regarding issues such as fisheries and land use.
Conventional energy includes burning fossil fuels (coal, natural gas, oil) and nuclear fission of uranium. Fossil fuels have several environmental costs from mining, drilling, and extraction and emit greenhouse gases and air pollution when burned.
Nuclear power sources do not emit greenhouse gases during power generation. Still, it requires mining, extraction, and long-term storage of radioactive waste.
The chart below defines green power generation based on its relative environmental benefits.
Why Is Green Power Important?
Green power is important to the environment as it replaces the negative effects of fossil fuels with greener alternatives. Green power comes from natural sources and is often renewable and clean. This means they emit little greenhouse gases and are often readily available.
Even considering the entire lifecycle of green energy sources, they emit far fewer greenhouse gases than fossil fuels and emit little or no air pollutants. Not only is this good for the planet, but it’s also good for the health of people and animals who need to breathe air.
Green power also contributes to energy price stability as it is often locally produced and not severely affected by geopolitical crises, price spikes, and supply chain disruptions. Economic benefits often also include job creation in constructing facilities that serve the communities that employ workers.
Flexible Energy source:
The regional nature of energy production from sources such as solar and wind makes energy infrastructures more flexible and less dependent on centralized energy sources that can cause disruptions and become less resilient to weather-related climate change.
Green energy is also a cost-effective solution to fulfill the energy needs in many parts of the world. This will only get better as costs continue to drop and access to green power continues to improve, especially in developing countries.
